A Grand Mistake Ever to Have fished Levelling Out of His Obscurity atWiehita, Kansas. The constant reiteration of the charges that the policy shop people of Kansas City, Kan., are furnishing campaign funds for the Populists is a matter that causes the most worry in Populist cir cles. John W. Breidenthal says not a single cent has buen receiv -d from them that he knows about, and those who know Mr. Breiieithal will believe this us concerns him personally, but the nkirt of others in the Stale house are not so easily cleared. .Mr. Breideutual doesn't tell everybody about it, but it is known that as long ago as last December he had unquestionable evidence lhat the policy and lottery uea of Kausas City were anxious to give up money to the ala.iuistrat.on. It was prior to that time that he sent Guy E. Hathaway, a man who soon after ward became a deputy bank commis sioner, to Kansas City with a letter au thorizing him to solicit stock subscrip tions to the "Fcpuitbt Press. aud .News Bureau Company." Hathaway, so Chair man BreidentUai afterwards learned, ac cepted nioiiey to the amount of rM. Fur what purports it was pa.d to him is nof known. He received ihe mjiiey from two sources, !$10J from one a:id ?2i:o from the other, but none of it ever reached headquarters, because as 'soon as llathcway received the money he went on a "tear" and lost all tne money. Soon after llt.thaway had been, ap pointed deputy tank commissioner, lireideathal lean ed of this tiansac.i u and the new deputy was "asked to re B:gn forthwith." Hathaway refused to resign and de nied the charges, but Breideuthal would not listen to his cjenial. Fuiaily in a tit of desperation Hatha way i-uid threateningly: "if you insist ou demand. ng my l es.gnaUo:i 1 will ex- pue thai o.d oue-.iriiied boodier across the liaii," ( neauiug Fred Close). Breidenthal loid htm tnat was" "ail right;" to go ah ? id, .as lhat -was just wnat he would like to see done, and say ing that, hi figured up Hathaway's salary auJ gae bun a certified voucher for the amount due him to date, aud let him go. Fred Close has net been exposed, and Chairman Lirei le;iPial now says that it wa-i just one of Hathaway' "bfi.Ho." Before leaving the tank coin mission er's otiice Uatli tway admitted haviug re ceive 1 tJl-jO of the money he is charged wi:h getting at K lasas Ci'y. tnle almost every state dep irtment 1 during the present state a.immistra tion 1 etm ctmrged with accepting money fro in the lottery and p -i.ey me:i, Chair mau Breidenthal stands alone as the oniy tnau in his party w iio has not beeu ac C'tsud of nouie crime or dioreputable act. Mr. Breidenthal apparen.lv d es not beheve io bood'ing, and if "he had his v ay about it, Goti nor Leu eiling would wipe out all state connection with the Missouri river cities tomorrow, by abol ishing ail the metrouoht ui poiice boar is.

Htid perspicacity of the party clweftain,' Jchn u . Breidenthal. Al most every eharga that is made against th'm admiuistratioi) is due to some stupid blunder of the governor iu his appoint ments. Leading Populists say that Lew eiling buju't the f iiutest idea whether a man tsi rogue or au honest man. They say his in:eutiou,s are all right, but that he hasn't sense. Y hen public attention is called to his blunders, he growj muiish and insists on landing by his Mistakes. Many Popu lists regret that thay went so far out of their way at the . Wichita convention to take upta uoknjwn man. when-lhere were plenty of good men .in the party who were known," and whose policy as governor could have beeu, relied on. Chairmnn John W. Breidentjial said to a State Journal reporter this morning; "11 kil the itor.es 1 have heard are true I believe I could go ta Kansas City Kansas ami collect $-.20,000 in twenty four hours from the gamblers lottery and policy men. ! 1 .'icu w 11 u aru euiaeu in a uusiuesa l which is in open violation of the law can i easily be tiled by representatives or the I law who will take advantage of their j positions. I have no doubt any police man in any of the -Missouri river towns could go to most any dive in His tova nud borrow" f 5, if he was hard ud. and i if ho could 'borrow' $5 cnce I he could cut it easier, next time. "It is true 1 Cave heard many stories about ihi stale administration accepting money and other bribes frutn the boodlers and gamblers of Kansas City, Kansas, but it is also true that no oi.e has ever traced any money into the hands of any member-of the administration. "I never d.d, and 1 don't believe Gov ernor Lewelling has received any money from these sources, for 1 have personally known several times of the governor be ing embarrassed for the want of money in his commission business at "Wichita, and if he was accepting money from those boodlers, he need not have been hard up iu his business." Chairman Breiaeothal admitted that mat ii tuese cuarires o; nuouie were true j he knew it, and if he and his administra- tion were accepting monthly stipends from lotteries, policy shops aud gamblers : as had beeu charged, he ought to decline j a renomination. I told him he would be a fool to accept a nomination if those i charges were true, and if they were true . he knew it. "I explained to him that if tho3e ! charges were true the proof of them ' would be sprung by his enemies imme diately after his reuumination and it would mean his defeat. The governor as.-cred me that the charges were not " true and said that it they were true, he knew he would be foolish to accept a renomination. ''I believed the governor's statement then and I believe what he said then is true now, as not a single j enny of boodle has been traced by airy pejrsuu to hrn. "After the public statement of liiv. J. G. Dougherty that he kuew that the state administration was" accepting money from the lotteries md gamblers of Kausas City, I wrote to him and usiied him to furnish me with the evidence. 1 told him that it was the evidence that was needed to correct this evil if it ex ists. '.N'ow what was the result? Rev. Mr. Dougherty simply wrote bactc to m; that from the sentiment expressed .u the puo lished letter of Associate Justice All?n, ho probably knows as much about it as any one.

FRAUDS AREPROVEa House Committee Reports on Carnegie Armor Plates. i .Report Says Frauds Are Worthy ! to be Called Crimes. FIXES NOT ENOUGH. Mere Money Compensation Can not Atone for the Outrage. Lives of Sailors and Safety of Nation Endangered. Washington, Aug. 23. Representa tive A. J. Cummings, chairman of the house committee ou naval affairs, pre gented to the house taday a preliminary report upon the investigation of the ar mor plate billets furnished to the gov ernment by the Carnegie steel company. The committee finds that charges of fraud have been sustained; scores the company -severely and says, as has been stated in these dispatches that 59 sus pected plates in use should be tested as the only method of proving their fl.ness or unfitness. It only finds lhat the gov ernment inspection was negligent, but no charge of dishonesty " rests upon the in spectors. Tne charges against the company were thgit the jjla.es and bolts had not re ceived the treatment required by the contract; that false reports were made to the government inspectors; that spec. mens for testing were re-treated be fore bemg submitted; that the testing ma chine was fraudleutly manipulated; that substitution was made in the cao of a plate designed for a ballistic test and that the government stamp was either duplicated or sto.en and used without the knowledge of the government in spectors. The report states that the number of furnaces used was totally inad -ijuate to fulfill the specifications of the contract oil the amount of armor plate turned out. Alter the tirst investiga tions of the frauds the uuinber of fur naces was increased from four to ten. Iu regard to the "jockeying" of the testing machines, it is asserted lhat the compatiy made private tests of material, and if itwas beiow tiie standard, mauipj uia ed the machine at the otlic.ai test so that it would show -the required strength. The charges of retreat lug aud substi tuting plates designed for ballistic tests tiie committee is satisfied are true. Tiie charge of using a duplicate ur stolen government stamp is not sustained. The report says tiie governm -ut in spection was negligent and defective, but th s is attributed to ihe fact th it there was not nearly enough inspectors to do the work. Ii is as-er.ed in the fraud nas been traced ho. lie to the gen eral .-uperinteudeui, who is a stockholder iu ihe Carnegie dinpany. Of the fea ture of criminality involved, Cutiiimia Cummings says: "Tiie frauds which your company have committed are worthy to be called crimes. Tne services of the Carnegie company (whether with or without ihe knowledge of the company) to increase this ga.u, deliberately continued for many mouths, is to commit act-i whose , n aural "and probable consequences I would be a terrible loss of men m wina ! of war and pt-ruaps the defeat to the uj- ; tion. j "io tine or make mere com i ensat ion is inadequate ment for such wrong-i. committee do no- con-ider it money wiiinu their province to draft a criminal statu e, but they do leei under obligations to call the attention of the house to the impor tance of j rotecting the lives of our sea men and ihe safety of thj nation by ap propriate legisla ion, deuouueing as crimes all such itcls as the frauds prac tice 1 ou ihe government in connection with armor plate and other material of v ar, and making such ac:s punishable in all peirttius no commit them" or aid iu their cum mission."

Kerens, member of the Republican na tional committee of Missouri, and whose attempt to have the Missouri Republican couvention, recently held, place itself upon record as opposed to the A. P. A., Is in the city. To a newspaper reporter, who interviewed him upon the matter, he said that he had no iuteulion of carrying the A. P. A. question before its natioual committee. "Tue A. P.

My fear is tnat the attempt of this element, foreign to the party with its pernicious doctrine to fasten itself to the Republican party, will drive away hundreds of thousands of honest votes. "The movement is, iu fact, noth ing more than " a revival of the ancient 'know nothing' doctrine, which, although short lived, was not without its effect on onr politics. The Republican party has ever been out spoken upon every public question, and has always had tae courage of its con victions. I do not. think that it will dodge this issue now. "The Republican party is less friendly thau any other party to such doctrines and will not . fail, in my judgment, to meet this issue, if it can be called such, manfully.-' 3I0UHILL C031ES OUT.

He Will Surely Let It Become a Law it is Said.. BUT WOS'T SIGN IT. Anxious Congressmen Urge Him to Sign the Bill. It Would Help Them to Defend It in the Campaign. Washington, Aug. 27. The president remains linn in his purpose to let the tariff bill become a law without his sig nature. This, as was stated by the Asso ciated Press at the time, was his inten tion when he left Washington for Gray Gables, and there is excellent authority for the statement that Mr. Cleveland since his return has indicated that he is of the same opinion as before he left here. A great deal of pressure has been and is still exerting to induce. Mr. Cleveland to forego his present purpose and to sign the bill, either with or without some message expressing his views, but the president gave no encouragement to those who have pressed views of this nature on his intention, and has indi cated that iie will allow the bill to be come a law by expiration of the ten days clause of the constitution. The persons most urgent in suggesting to ttie president thai tie sign the bill, are members of congress who have repre sented very strongly to the president that a signature for the bill will help them in their defense of it in the coming cam paign and tiiat should it not have the measure of presidential approval indica ted by Mr. Cleveland's signature, their position ou the stump wid be embar rassed to some extent at least. Speaker Crisp aud a number gressmeu have preseuted tins the" matter aud the speaker president todav on the subject. of coa view of saw the Sj far as cau be'learned the president' attitude ha-i beeu one of patient- listening to and consideration of ttie argument present ed, but he ha refrained carefully from making auy promises or giving encour agement to congressmen who wish the bill Bigued. A veto of the bill, however, is not even suggested. It canuot become a law witnout the presidential autograph until next Monday aud this being the case the adjournment of cm greVs will hardly taKe place before next Tuesday. 'Ihe fact that it is Mr. Cleveland's pur pose to permit the bill io become a law without his signature is alio a strong in dication of the improbability of any mes sage on i lie t .r if ir ra the president.
